The English Beat

The English Beat

Hailing from working-class Birmingham, England, Dave and The English Beat entered the music scene in the 1979. When The English Beat rushed on to the music scene in 1979, it was a time of social, political and musical upheaval. Into this storm came they came, trying to calm the waters with their simple message of love and unity set to a great dance Beat. The six member band consisted of singer/songwriter Dave Wakeling (vocals & guitar), Andy Cox (guitar), David Steele (bass), Everett Morton (drums), Saxa (saxophone) and Ranking Roger (toasting). The band managed to fuse all of their respective musical influences - soul, reggae, pop and punk - into a unique sound that was highly danceable. Along with contemporaries such as The Specials, The Selecter and Madness, The English Beat became one of the most popular and influential bands of the British Ska movement.

The Bullbuckers

Ska & Reggae for your Soul. This Wilmington based Ska band claims English Beat as one of their inspirations. A recent winner in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition in World Music and with four songs placing as finalists in the UK songwriting competition, they are thankful for that inspiration and honored to be supporting this legendary band.

"The Bullbuckers' Ska sound has propelled them to the top of the Delaware music scene."
- Matt Amis, Out & About Magazine, Wilmington 2012
